Eminem is the most successful rapper who ever lived. The influential Detroit native has done it all. Marshall has been a rapper, an actor, a businessman, and a father. It’s a difficult balancing act that leaves very little time pursuing personal interests.

His most recent endeavor was featuring on a track with Dr. Dre. Dre was a major part of the new GTA Online story, “The Contract.” A part of the new downloadable content includes several new tracks from Dre. “Gospel” features Eminem.

On the track, Shady dropped a huge shoutout to a major player in MMA. It seems he’s a big fan of UFC star Nate Diaz. Marshall keeps up with the fight game despite his crazy schedule.

“Nate Diaz got the world by the tracheas/
In a chokehold and a sleeper”

Plenty of major sports media outlets picked up on the shoutout. They noted that Nate Diaz is a huge fan of Eminem himself. There is a mutual respect between the fighter and the rapper.

Fans were thrilled to hear about the connection between the two. Eminem is a major influencer in popular culture. Just getting a shout out like Nate Diaz did is a huge deal.

Nate Diaz recently agreed verbally to a massive UFC bout with Dustin Poirier. If that goes well, he would like to build up to a fight with Conor McGregor. Having Eminem there to hype your career can only help.

Nate Diaz and Eminem are both major cogs in their respective industries. Fans who follow both have been enjoying the association. You can’t buy better publicity than a shoutout from Slim Shady himself.
